CBD oil is derived from hemp – industrial hemp. It’s grown specifically with low levels of THC. However, just because CBD has the legal limit of .3 percent THC, does not mean that it can’t or won’t show up on a drug test. There is a possibility of testing positive. The best choice for those who are in a job that is tested would be a Broad Spectrum with zero THC. Nona Oils will soon be carrying a 1500mg and 500mg Broad Spectrum.

According to Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults, ages 18 and older, or 18.1 percent of the population; and 70 million with sleep disorders.

According to, (http:/,

Cannabidiol (CBD) in Anxiety and Sleep: A Large Case Series),

there were 72 adults presenting with primary concerns of anxiety or poor sleep. Forty-seven had anxiety and 25 poor sleep. Anxiety scores decreased within the first month in 57 patients using CBD.  Sleep scores improved within the first month in 48 patients.

Their conclusion: Cannabidiol may hold benefits for anxiety related disorders.

There may not be many studies done here in the U.S., but many that use CBD have given testimonies on how CBD helps them with both anxiety and sleep.

We have all been told how important a good night sleep is for our health and there have been many studies showing the importance of a full night of sleep. But how many of us have no problem falling asleep, but staying asleep is another issue, or we lay there and our brains just will not shut off.

I have been there - I’m the one that can fall asleep but staying asleep for a full night, well that’s another story. I’ve been taking one of my new gummies about 45 minutes before bed and have been sleeping through the night. For me this is a blessing!

There are a variety of choices when it comes to CBD – oils taken sublingually, gummies, capsules, vaping (as long as it’s from a trusted source) or pre-rolls.
